There are an infinite number of possibilities for this sequence as can be seen from the table below (though I guess the simplest one is the one suggested by Melody)!

Sequences

Or it could be an oscillating sequence: 1/7 0 -1/7 0 1/7 0 -1/7 0 1/7 0 ...etc.

Or ...!!!

All you are doing is taking away 1/7 each time.
